A little time for you today

Hello my friends I have a little time to visit today.
We are having our grandson coming to stay for a few days of his 
school holidays.
Looking forward to this.
 Our bedroom furniture has been changed around and some put in other places in our home so a single air bed can fit in! 
Now to a stitching project or two.

This pattern came from `Just Cross Stitch` magazine Feb 2008.
I was sorting through my magazines and found I had kitted this up,
with the beads and bee charms already to go.
I decided to stitch it before time moved on.
Rather than frame this I made it up into a mini cushion.
So happy with the finish and the stitching didn`t take too long.

 I stitched this in 2000 from a `Spirit of Cross Stitch` video.
Merry Cox demonstrated her pattern of her Stitcher`s Case.
I used DMC threads from my cupboard.
The video needed to be put on a tape that I could use here.
I didn`t see the paper chart till YD showed me. 
Quite funny really.
This is my 1st  stitching birthday month project.
Since then I try to stitch one every year in my birthday month.
I try to kit it up well before.  

The main stitching on the front.
Inside is room for pin keep in the centre,
scissor holder at one end and the other a needle book.

Well it was nice to sit and let you know what has been done.
Also some secret stitching is on the go so will be back after this busy week coming up.
Happy Stitching,
